Rajani Kancharla*, N.Satyaprasad, A.SwaroopaABSTRACT
Grahani roga described in classical text books of Ayurveda represents a group of disorders of digestive system caused by impairment of Agni. Imbalance of Agni and Samanavata are the most predominant factors involved in the pathogenesis of Grahani roga. The cardinal features of Grahani explained in the clinical text books of Ayurveda, have at most similarities with the clinical features of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) explained in western medicine.
The study “A clinical study to evaluate the combined effect of Chavyadi Churnam Mustakarishta in Grahani w.s.r.to IBS” was undertaken to evaluate the combined effect of Mustakarishta and Chavyadichurnam in Grahani, with a stipulated time period of 40 days. One more observation after 3 months completion of treatment was made without any intervention to check the relapses if any.
In this study 30 patients were incidentally selected and assigned under a single group by confirming the clinical features of Grahani along with Rome II criteria. In the intervention Chavyadi Churna was administered 3 gms twice in a day with Takra as Anupana and Mustakarishta, 15ml twice daily after food with equal water. Overall 26 patients (86.6%) got complete relief, 4 patients (13.3%) got moderate relief. The results obtained on the parameters of study were highly significant with p< 0.001. At the end with these obtained results it can be concluded that the combination of Chavyadi Churnam and Mustakarishta are very effective in the management of Vataja Grahani i.e. IBS.
